Firmware for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, including the full system dump, was leaked by SamMobile this weekend. As expected, the OS version in the dump is currently ICS 4.0.4 as opposed to Jelly Bean, but there is still a slim chance we'll see 4.1 at launch. The tablet has received a number of upgrades since the announcement at MWC earlier this year, the most notable ones being a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a stylus slot.
The waiting game for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has been going on for several months now, but signs that the release is quickly approaching just keep pouring in. The latest of the bunch is probably the best yet, as it leaves basically nothing uncovered.
Korean blog The Brave Post got its hands on what appears to be a retail version of the device, unboxed it, and took a slew of pictures along the way.
We first heard of Sprint's mythical mid-ranger, the Samsung SPH-L300 (which is now said to be codenamed Gogh), back in early May. It has once again emerged from the shadows to cameo in a picture, this time alongside the HTC One X.

This little mid-ranger is said to be packing a modest a 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, and have 1GB RAM, a 5MP rear shooter, 4" Super AMOLED Plus display at 800x480, Android 4.0.4, and will run on Sprint's LTE network.
Normally, we don't get very excited about leaked images of mid-range devices. This one is no exception.
Still, it is a first look at a new device, so that counts for something.
What you're looking at there is a Samsung device codenamed Jasper. It's a mid-ranger with specs to match:
- 1.5GHz Dual-core Snapdragon MSM8960
- 800x400 display (ewww)
It's hard to say how large the display is judging by the image, but we'd guess it's probably around four inches.
Users of Motorola's Atrix 2 who have been yearning for a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich on their devices have something to be excited about today – earlier this morning, an official ICS OTA update was leaked, or rather discovered using CheeseCake, a tool that essentially allows individuals to check specialized Moto servers for updates, meaning no company personnel need be involved in the leak. Here's a quick explanation from our contact Manoj:
Verizon announced the Droid Incredible 4G LTE back in May, and... well, that's it. We haven't heard anything else about the device since (on an official level, anyway), even though it was supposed to be available in "the coming weeks" after the announcement. In all fairness, "weeks" could be any range of time, but we generally think of that as two or three, not seven or nineteen.
Finally, though, a probably release date has leaked.
About a month ago, Motorola updated its Ice Cream Sandwich update timeline. While we've already seen one update go live on schedule, we're still waiting on official word for the rest of the handsets on the list. Late last night, however, an ICS ROM for the Droid Bionic surfaced, and it seems to be a mostly-complete build.
A couple images of the rumored Droid RAZR HD just landed on Droid Life, showing off the back and side the device; while that really isn't much, at least it's something.
For starters, it's pretty obvious that Motorola stuck with the distinct RAZR Kevlar backing, which is quite nice. Otherwise, there's a camera - rumored to be 13MP - a flash, a speaker, and of course, the 4G LTE logo and Verizon branding.
It seems like we've been hearing about a Motorola device headed to AT&T codenamed "Dinara" for eons now. A new press shot of this elusive device has now fallen into the hands of The Verge, and it shows a very different handset than the one sharing the same codenamed that was released in China last year.
As you can see, this device is definitely running Ice Cream Sandwich, with a seemingly tolerable version of Motoblur (or whatever they're calling it these days) slapped on top of it.
S Voice is Samsung's entry into the fledgling "virtual assistant" market currently occupied by Siri, Evi, Speaktoit Assistant, Vlingo, and a handful of others. The Galaxy S III rom leaked earlier today, and while most of the stuff in it is broken and completely useless without the version of Touchwiz it's meant to run on, S Voice is a perfect combination of being interesting AND working. So we're going to take a look at it on my Galaxy Nexus, which is currently running vanilla (well, AOKP) 4.0.4.
